We have just finished two pieces cut from the tail of the Bell Huey. One painted as 101st Airbourne and the othe with the Eagle from the Cavalry squadrons. Both have kept the original paint from when the aircraft was in service.
This hatch was from the closing mechanisium of the Sea Vixen wings. With original paint and the flying fist logo added by us it is a striking piece. The hinge has all the part numbers and de Havilland inspectors stamp. The drawing for it is belowSea Vixen
A junkers Ju 88 Elevator section..
Spent a little time unbending this piece of aircraft. Sold as 110 but we have positively identified as Ju88 elevator section. The lower paint is RLM 65. Upper surface is painted in RLM 70/71. The crisp demarcation between the two greens is very clear. Lost in Russia with evidence of shrapnel and bullets.
Metal alloy cast tail fins
An empty tail section from an RAF 28 lb Practice Bomb - mounted onto a section of Elm. Looks like a Wylie Coyote cartoon bomb impact. This practice bomb was used by the RAF in the 70's and 80's from Jaguar, Tornado, Harrier etc..
B17 wing control mechanism
Two pieces from the Boeing B17. They are used to control the flaps on the wings. After cleaning and lubricating they now turn again.
